Hill Cafés Are Jordanians’ Latest Favorite Outing in Sweltering Hot Summer

(AWP) - Cafés built on high hills have become a top favorite outing for the Jordanians in the latest demonstration of defiance of hot weather in Amman.

Al-Matallat, or cafés built on high places, which have become in vogue these days, provide convenient spaces and comfortable serene sitting away from the noisy hustle and bustle of the city.

Owners of those cafés and kiosks had opted to set up their businesses on the outskirts of the city center in order to lure calm-searching customers.

The cafés have become a nice destination for Jordanians during the summer season, when schools are closed and expatriates are home for vacationing, as outdoor places in the heart of the cities are few and if they are available would charge too much for services.

The local authorities in Amman had clamped down many of these cafés and kiosks ad forced their owners to shut them down and imposed financial penalties on others on the grounds that their businesses were unlicensed.

The latest measures have harmed many Jordanians who had these projects as a good source of income.
